Luranc Andrzej from Osiek near Oswiecim - locating Pictures of Politicians - aka Town Administrator


Guest  
26 Nov 2005 /  #1
My Great Grandfather was Town Administrator In the town of Osiek K
Oswiecim - Now the province of Malopolskie. Prior Biala- and MY question
would be is there still pictures like these available from 1890-1910?
and is it the town in which they lived that holds pictures of these men?
his last name was Luranc, Andrzej and MY grandmother told me her father
was like a mayor in Poland, I know the parish in which he was born, I know
his birth date, I have no infomation other then what I was told about
his political career, and would like to add this to my tree :D

I was told by a friend that being a mayor in Poland -would be called
town administrator, so can someone help me to locate his picture?
or if someone can visit the town Osiek, near Polanka Wielka and check
if there is one of him there? I never seen a picture of him, but knowing
what my Great Uncle Jozef Looks like will help me to know if I see it.
My great Uncle Jozef immigrated to Detroit in 1893 and I have been
in touch with this family .
if anyone can help me please let me know. email Nightwhisper19@aol.com

Thanks so much.

Merged:Luranc from Osiek, Malopolskie & Gorecki from Kolno Podlaskie

These names I am researching, It is worth a try on here !
First names for Luranc I am trying to locate, still in Poland
Possibly Grojec for Adam Luranc, and I have a Elizabeth Luranc
who married a French Soldier, and the children contacted family
after the parents died, no one was for sure it was them, due to
the war, but I know they were raised by organist of Parish in France.
I don't know the surname, I am just hoping for a miracle on that one!

I also have a Franciszek Luranc, dates for these range 1859-62
I really only want to locate descendants of these folks who are
great Uncles. (good luck Ehh?) well , if anyone with a Luranc in their
family sees this, please feel free to email me, I have alot more info
on this family. Patricia

OOOps. forgot the Gorecki.
Kolno is the town which my grandmother came, Murowska is her (I believe)
Step-Mothers name. I have another surname for her mother misspelled and
I don't know the actual spelling. fathers name was Paul, and many Gorecki
went to Pennsylvania- wilkes barre and then to Michigan
I have also a Ohio connection. Lorain Ohio is mentioned, and Cleveland
is where she was married.
Grandmothers name Marianna, siblings are Helen, Leon, Veronica.
Aka Maryanna, Helena, Leopold and Weronika.Two Other unknown
sisters remain In Poland, and also I have one unknown brother who married
a EWA _maiden name unknown- found on the Baltimore manifests when
Helena came over .

anything looks familiar, please let me know:) Patricia.

I know this is an old post and I can't find an answer to it

But it does bring to mind the idea of photos and newspaper archives.

Does anyone have any addresses.

yikes it is an old one alright, digging in the old back rooms eh? :)

Do you think it could be as simple as contacting the town officials office of today?

I was thinking of being able to do an on-line search rather than writing and possibly not getting a reply.

email them alternatively, you'll definitly get no reply if you dont try.

online search for that period id imagine, like you, that the odds are bad, worse than not getting a reply id imagine.

I must be getting all the good civil servants the way some people go on about it.
In all my several dealings, they've handled them quickly, correctly & to my satisfaction

but i know, you live there and know better (ie the day to day)

I wasn't thinking of me. I thought someone might be able to add to the Genealogy Resourses thread.

this is really stupid, cause it was mine when I first found all of you :)

I don't think any exists for him, yes great gramps was town admin and
he lived past the war ( can you believe it :) )

he was born in like 1860's and died just after the war.. thats why when I was
told that the cemeteries have people buried right over others, I was bummed.

its like theres nothing left of his time here, not even a grave.

maybe they do things different in other towns, that is why I asked.
is there such a thing as pictures of political people who served as mayors?

Do you think it could be as simple as contacting the town officials office of today?

if this was that easy, and there was a actual picture of him, I would
fall over in my chair right now!

Daffy I have looked and looked ( one eyeball fell out put it back in) and looked!

at first I didn't even know what you called a Mayor in Poland..

my dads side they were burgers? but that is a landlord right?
so I have landlords and mayors and military so far.

this give me an idea :) be ready for a new topic.
